Wills Domain 2018 Winner

The rise of Wills Domain from Regional Restaurant of The Year in 2017, to take the top restaurant award in 2018, has been nothing short of spectacular. The highest award in hospitality in WA is not earned cheaply or easily. Our reviewing team went on a number of occasions to ensure we were on the right track and, yes, we were – Wills Domain is a worthy winner.

It is a restaurant that embodies all that is professional and customer-focused about a dining offer. But it is more. This coveted award is bestowed on a venue that has a cohesive, inventive offer, superior cooking and technique, a well-balanced menu, superb and genuine service and the proper integration of menu, wine and drinks program. It is the restaurant which, above all others, has surprised and delighted its guests in 2018 and set the highest standards in WA.

As in most things, success in business comes from the leadership team, the tone they set, the policies and procedures they create aimed at making staff perform better and happily and, of course, the sheer creative heft of key decision makers. This is the Wills Domain way. As we discovered this year, the relationship between managing director Darren Haunold and head chef Seth James has developed into a team that works well and thoughtfully together in pursuit of excellence and the best customer experience they can create.
